Last week I mentioned how an episode of Toy Hunter inspired me to do a series of Real Ghostbusters themed Toy Commercial Tuesday posts this month. Above you can see the actual one that started this whole thing. I didn’t actually have the Ghost Trap or Ecto Goggles as a kid but I think a friend did and we’d play with this stuff all the time.
I did however have the Ghost Popper seen in the above commercial. I’m pretty sure my friend did too and we’d have some pretty epic wars shooting those yellow tubes at each other. Someone else I know — maybe a cousin? — had the Proton Pack which seemed cool, but I remember those foam proton streams not doing too well when it came to not getting broken.
